| Tech Board|| Well, Microsoft still hasn't figured out how to upgrade the OS - Casty McBoozer on 2/25/15 at 11:07 pm|
Windows 7 to 8.1.
Installation was successful, but it BSOD's about every 5 minutes.
Doing a clean install like I should have known to do.
Microsoft should stop offering upgrade options and just tell you ahead of time that you have to do a clean install. I have my shite backed up so it isn't...

I haven't messed with VLANs, I understand the basic concept but all the terminology is a little confusing.
Let's say to simplify my setup that I have a couple of VLAN switches (Procurves in this case if it matters).
What we want to do is have 3 VLANs. One for the main corporate network, a sec...
| Tech Board|| What's a reliable public IP I can use for monitoring - Casty McBoozer on 2/16/15 at 12:21 pm|
I currently have 2 WANs setup, they monitor 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. Not being able to ping those IPs on an interface results in a failover trigger. We're adding a 3rd ISP feed. What's another good IP to use?...

If so, how do you like it? Good benefits?

| Tech Board|| Netgear Nighthawk router - Casty McBoozer on 2/5/15 at 9:43 pm|
I set one of these monsters up today, I was installing internet services and the customer had his own router.
On the plus side, right next to the router I was getting 60 Mbps throughput to speedtest.net (60 Mbps is the limitation of that ISP feed, not the router). Not too bad wireless throughput...
| O-T Lounge|| Resume templates - Casty McBoozer on 1/30/15 at 8:44 pm|
It has been a while since I've updated my resume. I've noticed that on all the new resume templates in Word, there's a section for Objective.
What in the actual frick? My objective is to get a fricking job with whoever I'm sending a resume to. Is this a real question? What kind of dumb informati...
| O-T Lounge|| Cost of health insurance? - Casty McBoozer on 1/28/15 at 10:21 pm|
This is just baffling to me. Is there no end to the rise in cost?
My company is supposedly paying for half of my health insurance but I'm now paying $300/month. 35 years old, completely healthy, my medical bills are $0.00 every year. I do not have any need for a doctor. I have insurance in case...
| Tech Board|| Are any of you using Exchange Online - Casty McBoozer on 1/21/15 at 4:33 pm|
I'm about to do a migration, I was just wondering if Microsoft's spam filtering for their online solution is any good? I know on premises Exchange is terrible for spam filtering and I'm using MX Logic (now Mcafee SaaS). I'm wondering if MX Logic can be eliminated.
| Tech Board|| People and their usernames/passwords - Casty McBoozer on 1/9/15 at 1:17 pm|
What is wrong with people?
I go out the other day and setup a couple of RDP sessions. The user accounts are AD, I had a default password set, and set to require password change on use.
On the first login, I put the credentials, and I let the user pick their password.
2 days later, I send m...

I lose my shite all the time so I've become a fan of these folding utility knives. They're cheap, and you don't have to worry about sharpening blades, you just change them.
I was using this one: [link=(http://www.amazon.com/Sheffield-12115-Premium-Folding-Lock-Back/dp/B0002YQVIE)]LINK[/link]

I think it would be a pretty useful feature to be able to post things only visible to a subset of your friends.
I have drinking buddies, and I have running buddies. I have atheist buddies, and I have religious buddies. Sometimes I'd like to post something but restrain because certain people w...

I work in I.T.
A customer just requested my cell phone so her boss can call me about a laptop. They know our office number.
WTF? I guess not. These bitches are crazy. If I gave my cell to my customers I'd need a new number in a week.
